Chewbacca Costume from 1977

Take a look at this super old school Chewbacca costume from 1977.

Why is Chewbacca’s head printed on the stomach? It has a mask, so now Chewbacca looks like he has two heads.

ThatCostumeGirl Goes Back to the ’80s


ThatCostumeGirl goes back to the ’80s! How cute. She put together a styling retro ensemble and made a fun dancing video.

Nice moves, TCG!

The clothing part went pretty well. I wore an old stretched pink sweater over a bright yellow graphic tee. I put on some lace edged black leggings and scrunch socks. I finished the look with green fingerless gloves. My Adidas are in my trunk because I forgot to get them out, oh well. For the makeup I smeared on some blue eyeshadow and pink lipgloss. Simple. The hair is sectioned with a couple of star shaped ponytail holders. Fun. Fun. Fun.

Super Cool Aerobics Fashion

Look at their cool outfits! LOL, these guys are going to town.

This video is from a 1987 Aerobics Championship. The ’80s sure were a special time for us.

World War 2: Superhero Concept Art


When a clever Photoshopper adds our favorite costumed superheroes (and one famous villain) to old World War II photos – it makes for some very interesting concept art.

These are great! I think my favorite is the Batman photo, with Darth Vader and Stalin coming in at a close second.

BuzzFeed has a fantastic collection of vintage family photos pre-dating 1930.

What a fine looking bunch! LOL, these so funny. I really like the guy in the tree. And yeah, some of these are downright creepy.

Good times!

Space Costume Dance

Sigh, the 1970’s were such a special time for us.

For example, take this space dance video, staring Raquel Welch. She sports a very sexy space costume! I like her space men backup dancers, too.

LOL, this is an excerpt from Raquel Welch’s 1970 TV special. Good times.

Love is in the Air

Mothers, guard your daughters. These men are on the prowl and they’re impossible to resist.

LOL, this video is hilarious! It’s one of the best collection of mullets and fine fashion that I’ve seen in a long time. I hope they found true love. Or, a good therapist. I’m not sure what’s up with Fred the Viking, but he strikes me as the clear winner.

I’m really sure what’s going on here. Tree costumes? They all have their arms raised, except the girl on the left. Maybe she’s just a baby tree.

Excellent Christmas present costumes! I wonder who they’re giving themselves to? I bet this was for a custom Christmas card.

It makes perfect sense for these ladies to wear fake mustaches and sombreros as they pretend to be Mexican men. And check out the giant tub of Red Vines. Now that’s a party.

Ahh, they’re on roller skates. Rolling the dice – I get it! Not bad, really.

LOL, I think this family seriously loves Ozzie Osbourne.

Who thought this was a good idea?


Okay, these last two photos aren’t really costume-related, but they’re so strange and funny that I wanted to include them anyway.

Such nice, pretty girls. But what’s with the chickens? LOL!

I don’t know what to say about this picture. What’s to say? Watermelon. Gun. Totally awesome.
